    Great place... the only place I have had soup dumplings in Texas, and they were excellent. Decor is modern and comfortable, with the only exception being that the two-top tables are too narrow to push chairs in under the table. Service was also very good and not over the top. Xi took very good care of us - five stars for him, for sure. The only reason I put 4 stars is because the menu indicates there is an 8% discount for paying in cash, which is actually not allowed in Texas (Tex. Finance Code § 339.001). The statute indicates no fee can be charged for the use of a credit card.This has been broadly interpreted to include offering discounts for not using a credit card. I hope that this restaurant stops this practice before someone complains to the Texas Department of Banking or Office of Consumer Credit Commissioner. Prices are very fair, even without any discount. Our meal was $62 for two people with an appetizer, a beer, and a glass of wine. Good place, go here. Eat soup dumplings. Be happy.

    Amazing place, hands down the best dumplings in town! Great atmosphere, great service!! We had about 8 or 9 of their dishes, not just dumplings, and everything was fresh and tasty. Highly recommended.

    Pricy food with small portion for soup dumplings, pan fried buns and some other dishes. I spent $20 for lunch and still didn't get full. The quality of food is so so. It's definitely not matched for the high price. The only positive thing of the restaurant is the atmosphere and service are good.

    Nice cute Asian restaurant. They offer some very traditional Sichuanese dishes but in nice and new presentation. We ordered assorted dumpling, sweet & sour ribs and sunrise corn. My son loved the all.
